Well, I managed to get 8.6 of the 9 miles I had planned on today; as I was finishing up my run I got a call from the coach at my son's sports camp. I freaked out, naturally, only to have them tell me that he left his backpack open and his snack was taken by a crow. Um, okaaaay... He was rather upset about it (yes, he's five) and they were wondering if I was close enough to bring him a new snack. Er, I'm out on a run and could be there in less than twenty minutes, but can you maybe ask the other kids to share? Or something? PEOPLE. It's three hours - I think he'll live! This is not Defcon 1 here. I'm thinking they probably could have handled it without me. But as I hung up, I hemmed and hawed about what a bad mother I am, that I shouldn't have been more than 10 minutes away, that my kid was probably having an epic fit, and, and, and... So my head just wasn't in it anymore and I cut my run a tad short, only to pick up a very contented boy who snagged a Cliff Kid's Z Bar (which was what the crow took, by the way) and some baby carrots off the other kids. I should send him to camp sans snack more often!
Here's some random fun from the internets this week. Via Whoorl's facebook page: someone has added a recipe for ICE on Food.com. The comments are fantastic fun.
I think we might have to finally trek down to Point Defiance Zoo! Lauren shared this on Twitter the other day and I just about died - watch to the end.
As many folks are aware it's Hood to Coast weekend and if you want to follow some of the action, check out #NuunHTC on Twitter - many great gals are running for Nuun!
Since I shared quite a few songs yesterday, instead of adding a new one today, I thought I'd compile my list and just add to it every Friday so it's all together in one place. I linked to Amazon because I have an Android phone and that's how I buy/listen to my music. Hope it helps if you're looking to change up your playlist. Happy Weekend!
